    Re: An open request to the HOFers on PP.O

    I haven't been around as much as I would like to be... work has been fairly crazy, and with the boss deciding to sit directly behind me, well that limits my time, but I like to check in when I can.

    The off season is a good time for a reminder about being polite and respectful of others.
    The off season is a difficult time for everyone to get through.

    Re: An open request to the HOFers on PP.O

    Have things gotten less strict or do mods just overlook a lot.
    It seems like people were getting banned all the time and we had a lot more trolls.

    I know I got banned for an hour the first week I was here

    Nothing is overlooked from me.
    I may not post much, but I am on here all the time.
    I work a 12 hour shift and many times while most of you are sleeping.
    I have my profile set so you cannot see when I am on (just trying something new).
    I may not be able to read every, single post....but I read 80% of things here (except really gay stuff).

    I know of all the little spats between certain members and things are addressed between those members.
    I would like to think I have settled a few things, and some I have not been much help.

    Also, use the "Report to Moderator".
    All the mods see these and we do discuss things.
    Even if something is reported and I may think it is ok, I always let the person know who reported it what I think.

    As far a banning, you are wrong....dead wrong.
    I am banning like mad in the last 3 months.
    90% you do not see because they never get a chance to post.
    It's not trolls (because we killed them all) it is spammers.
    Mainly spammers from certain parts of the world.
    Since we started getting hammered months ago by bots and spammers, I have set the new member registration to Admin approval; it is not automatic like it was when most of you joined.
    I did this mainly because after a loss some hot head would come in to post some dumb shit and then never come back.
    That would get everyone all fired up and we would have spats over something some dipshit ranted about.
    Then came the spammers...a lot of spammers.
    For a time I would say spammers out numbered non-spammer registration 4-1.
    I use a pretty neat site that has a huge database from people who have been spammed.
    I can search by IP, email, and username.
    I ban the IP immediately.
    Some others that seem suspicious I do a simple IP locate.
    How many Vikings fans do we have from Nigeria?
    I bet not many.

    Anyways, got a little off topic there.
    But this site is being combed and people are being dealt with.
    We just have not had the troll issue, but some more personal issues as of late and they have been addresses.

    When in doubt, report to mod.
    HoF's need to stick together as well.

    Re: An open request to the HOFers on PP.O

    Time to pipe in - I am active; I just have a rough job these days and can't post as much...

    Hell I had to announce my move back to MN on a weekend - if that says anything.

    I can't argue with anything I read - we are bitching more and taking things too personal.
    A thread like this can be just the slap in the back of the head we need....

    I do not utilize the report to mods button enough; none of us do.
    Personally I piped in with a few ruler pictures when I thought some gentle banter had gone too far.... things leveled out afterwards but it wasn't my doing.

    At any rate; this is the off-season, we all want our Vikes to do well (Except you Pack93z, but we let you slide because you're legitimately good people and we do value you here more than we let on). We definitely need to do a better job of controlling ourselves...

    Ultra, you do a shit-load but sometimes it seems like you're stuck doing it alone... but then again, we may have other silent mods....


    Trust me, I'm a doctor.

    I owe a public apology to Nodak as well for the immature way I've been acting towards him.

    Hope we can put my stupidity in the past. Sorry dude.

    And if you are still mad, go look at the true hall of famers thread. Take a few mintues to yourself, and then go back to posting.
    Of course there's more controversy & arguments now. Not so long ago there was no QB controversy & no WR controversy. Primarily coaching was the only area where we saw the most arguments. Now that there has been a change over of owners, coaches, players, offensive & defensive schemes & a team with no clear cut QB, there's going to be a lot more heated discussions.

    If you do get mad, I suggest buying one of these T-shirts & when you feel the urge to unload on a poster with retalliation, slip it on & take a 1/2 hour walk thru the park.

    I guarantee you'll feel a lot better when you get back to your PC. Perhaps even a little proud.
